Answer & Explanation

S1. Ans. (b)

Sol. You cannot repel (drive away) comments or criticism, only an attack or onslaught can be repelled. So, the pair of most suited words would be citizens – onslaught

S2. Ans. (c)

Sol. Since, there is a but between the two parts of the sentence, the passive words should be antonyms. (a) and (d), thus, get eliminated never – also do not fit the sense of the sentence properly thus, not – always are the most suitable fillers for the given sentence.

S3. Ans. (c)

Sol. An analysis must be careful, it may or may not be detailed and final. It certainly should not be random, thus, (a) is eliminated of the remaining careful is the most appropriate choice for this sentence.

S4. Ans. (c)

Sol. Graphologist is one who studies handwriting, while a cosmetologist is a person skilled in the art of cosmetics, Beagle is a species of dog and lapidary is a person skilled in polishing of stones

S5. Ans. (b)

Sol. The second blank could either be voice so (c) and (d) are eliminated. Hypothetic means something that is assumed and titular means a ruler without real authority. So, titular – voice is the appropriate choice of words.

S6. Ans. (b)

Sol. If the particles need no wounding then spanning is their natural property, so the filler for second plant should be synonymous to natural or internal. Radical means drastic, intrinsic is inbuilt or internal, intangible is something that is not available in the physical form, hypothetical is assumed. Thus, intrinsic will be the filler for the second gap.

S7. Ans. (b)

Sol. Apprehend means to arrest, nabbed means to catch, admonish is scolding mildly, the second gap could be filled by either option (a), (b) or (d) renowned means popular for some talent or skill, thus, too can be eliminated. The choice is between (a) and (b), notorious means popular for wrong reason and is, therefore, a more appropriate choice than famous.

S8. Ans. (d)

Sol. Spleen means anger, so, according to the meaning of the sentence, the object should be inanimate (lifeless)

S9. Ans. (a)

Sol. (c) and (d) can be eliminated because intimidations is a noun whereas we have to fill an adjective, inherent will give the sentence a positive meaning whereas it is negative towards compromise. (a) and (b) are available options because unselected and odious are both negative words. Compromise and confusion, although, do not fit well, so (a) will be the answer.

S10. Ans. (d)

Sol.  A proposal is ‘turned down’ not forced down. So, we have to choose from (b) and (d) naiveté means inexperience and sophistry means clever reasoning done to mislead. sophistry and turned are the appropriate fillers for the sentence.

(e) All of these

Answer & Explanation

S1. Ans.(a)

Sol. Processing delay is the amount of time taken by the switch for examining the header of the data packet and examining the next switch for redirecting the data packet. It can also be defined as the time taken by the switch in the identification of bit-level errors in the data packet. It is measured in microseconds.

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. A bridge is a network device used at the data link layer to connect two dissimilar networks as well as similar networks.

S3. Ans.(c)

Sol. As the installation cost of thinnet coaxial cable is less, it is also known as cheapernet.

S4. Ans.(a)

Sol. In 10BaseT, 10 means the transfer rate of this Ethernet is 10 Mbps; Base describes the type of signalling used, that is Baseband; and T denotes that the cable used is twisted -pair cable.

S5. Ans.(d)

Sol. A wireless network allows a user to connect different computers or devices by using wireless network protocols. It provides mobility by allowing access to a network irrespective of the location. The installation of a wireless network is easy compared to a wired network. Also, a wireless network does not required expensive wires a cables; therefore, this type of network is cost effective. However, this type of network is insecure.

S6. Ans.(a)

Sol. In the Bus topology, all the nodes and peripherals are connected to a single cable that acts as the backbone of the network. Therefore, there is no need for a hub, switch or router for connecting nodes in this topology.

S7. Ans.(b)

Sol. The Physical layer handles voltage, electrical pulses, connectors and, switches so that data can be transmitted over transmission media.

S8. Ans.(a)

Sol. Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) is a connectionless protocol on the network layer used for interconnecting networks using Novell’s Netware clients and servers. TCP and SPX (Sequenced Packet Exchange) are available on the Transport layer. SNMP is an application layer protocol. Ethernet is a data link layer protocol.

S9. Ans.(d)

Sol. UDP and TCP protocols are used for providing end-to-end connectivity between nodes in a network as they use connectionless and connection oriented services, respectively. The end-to-end communication between nodes is the responsibility of the Transport layer.

S10. Ans.(c)

Sol. The application layer of the OSI model provides a framework to run application programs. It defines the language and syntax used by programs to communicate with supplementary programs.

S11. Ans.(d)

Sol. In the three-tier architecture, there is an additional server, called the application server, between the client and database servers. The application server reduces the work of the database server, thereby making application processing efficient. It is more secure because the client cannot access the database directly. However, it is more complex to build.

S12. Ans.(d)

Sol. Emoticons or smileys are elements that help you express your emotions or feelings more clearly in your e-mail. They provide a more direct and funny way to express yourself in addition to the words you use in your e-mail message.

S13. Ans.(d)

Sol. The three important elements of a search engine are spiders or Web crawlers, indexing software and search algorithm.

S14. Ans.(c)

Sol. CRC stands for Cyclic Redundancy Check. Frame Check Sequence (FCS) stores the calculation value of CRC that is used for error detection.

S15. Ans.(e)

Sol. Crossover cables are used to connect two computers by reversing (crossing over) their respective pin contacts. A crossover cable can be created by reversing the order of the wires inside a cable so that it can connect two computers directly.
